    I need a powerpoint slide show that covers securing your weapon. One of my guys walked away from his CHU with the door unlocked and his weapon sitting on his bed. When my Platoon SGT went to his room, he knocked and opened the door - and found the empty room and the unsecured weapon.

    Myself and my dirtbag SPC will be giving a 30 minute class on the requirements for your weapon and your room to be secured at all times.

    :coolugh:

    how about a powerpoint of SPCs getting smoked for screwing up, like 50 slides. That should get the point across

    Said smokage has already occured. This is his second offense. He left his weapon at the mission staging area about a month ago. He also got the dogshit smoked out of him for that one.

    Nothing a little 550 cord can't fix.

    One of my troops left his weapon in the porta-potty, and didn't realize it for over an hour. :mad: I tied his weapon and NVG's to him with 550 cord, leaving enough slack so that he could employ his weapon effectively. He was like that for 5 days. His weapon was never more than 3 feet from him after that.

    I've forgotten my weapon once before, it happens to everyone at least one time. I remedied the situation by posting up placards saying "Wheres your weapon?" on my bunk and at both doors of my bee hut. Never happened again.

    another good way to make sure they doesn't happen to make them carry something else like a decent size rock or metal pole in addition to their weapon.

    Another Platoon SGT made one of his guys switch from his M4 to a .50 Cal for a week. THAT was harsh. :ugh:

    That's what I'm talking about. And how the fuck do you forget your weapon. No, this does not happen to all of us at least once.

    He rigged a sling for the receiver. Either him or a battle buddy had to carry the barrel and a minimum load of 30 rounds.

    I'm guessing he didn't go very many places other than the latrine and our mission staging area for that week.

    Seems like some brass would get kind of upset about that around base.

    if you can get the materials make something the shape of a short bus for anybody who leaves their weapon unsecured. Make them carry it in plain sight for at least a week or until somebody else leaves their weapon unsecured. patrols are an exception. We do something like that for acts of buffoonery. You have to be kinda careful though so it doesn't get called hazing. but Army can smoke the shit out of people so making them walk around with a short bus model for a certain amount of time shouldn't be an issue.

    When we were at our mob station, we had a B.O.D.A. patch that anyone that did something stupid had to wear, until the next dumbass came along and earned the right to wear it. It was great because they would be stopped all the time by people asking what BODA stood for. They were required to tell exactly what it was they did to earn the BIG OL' DUMB ASS patch. :rofl:
